Beginning of the second year at Foresthold, my first attempt at an above-ground fortress. The main living area, farms, workshops, etc. are actually underground, but the ground level will serve as a massive barracks, as well as allow safe farming of above-ground plants, and a safe, endless water supply.
I had originally planned to use a more complex design, but ended up deciding to stick with a modular, square based design for the underground portion of the fortress.
Each square is exactly the same size, with the exception of the stair-access rooms, which are made a bit smaller, to allow the walls to be engraved as a part of just that room.
So far, four of the designs are in use. The bedroom design, on the right and upper-right, allows 8 rooms, with a bed, and later a chest. The bedrooms are smoothed to increase value (and happiness).
The workshop design use to be a little more enclosed, but I messed up my sketches, and got the measurements wrong, so they ended up a little more open than I had planned. You can see this plan best in the bottom-middle room. The walls are smoothed to look like pillars, and may be replaced with actual pillars, if I find a material I think would fit.
The dinning room is on the middle-left, and will eventual sit 15 at a time. All the tables and chairs are Jet, unlike most of the other furnishings in the fortress, which use wood. (To save stone for the wall). The storage space in the bottom-right is about as simple as it gets, and is simply a hollow room with a pillar in the middle, in case cave-ins come back :P - timmeh
